comment Terminal.app bash character echoing messed up
@Scytale - It's the colours. I've got the same problem, but if I remove all escape sequences (like \e[0;36m) from my PS1 then ctrl+r works as expected.

comment Linux Utility for “Timestamping” Functionality
This works! It updates the ~/.lastrun file in-place which is useful too.

comment Linux Utility for “Timestamping” Functionality
Ideally it should be just the file metadata (e.g. path, size, last-modified) rather than a copy of the directory as that'd be too large. rsync definitely has this timestamping functionality though - but I hope to find it as a standalone tool (the unix philosophy?)
